KurzbeschreibungFocus is on laminated fibre reinfoced polymer composites. The courses treats aspects related to micromechanics, elastic behavior of unidirectional and multidirectional laminates, failure and damage analysis, design and analysis of composite structures.
LernzielTo introduce the underlying concept of composite materials and give a thorough understanding of the mechanical response of materials and structures made from fibre reinforced polymer composites, including elastic behaviour, fracture and damage analysis as well as structural design aspects. The ultimate goal is to provide the necessary skills to address the design and analysis of modern lightweight composite structures.
InhaltThe course is addressing following topics:
- Introduction
- Elastic anisotropy
- Micromechanics aspects
- Classical Laminate Theory (CLT)
- Failure hypotheses and damage analysis
- Analysis and design of composite structures
- Draping effects
- Special topics
